Orlando has an aggressive pedestrian and biking plan to eliminate fatalities by the year 2040. Part of that effort is to develop a continuous Orlando Downtown Loop (formerly called the Orlando Bicycle Beltway), which is already emerging. This effort uses portions of existing bike trails and is filling gaps to eventually create an 8.5 mile trail loop connecting locals to neighborhoods, shopping, dining, parks and offices. See map. (Note: On our Google map, in addition to the Loop and gaps, we believe it useful to include the entirety of the connecting bike trails, so at a glance you can view all nearby cycling options.)
Below we list the Orlando Downtown Loop trails, connectors, and remaining gaps, starting on the Orlando Urban Trail at Magnolia Avenue and looping through Downtown Orlando going counter-clockwise.
